Marinated Steak with Spaghetti Squash

Marinated Steak with Spaghetti Squash Recipe

While we make steak all the time, we never marinate it, and I really have been wanting to try it for a good while. Advent evenings are definitely very suitable for grilling and trying something new, so yesterday I decided to make marinated steaks. I usually make grilled corn and baked potatoes to go with meat, but after hearing my mom’s advertising for baked pumpkin, I set off to try something new too. Pumpkins and I have never been friends and I use them for Thanksgiving decorations only. This might change as time goes on, but for now an interesting squash was just fine.

Pumpkin Cooking

I ordered steak and spaghetti squash via Instacart and had them delivered from Publix a few hours before cooking. I have been using Instacart very often and will continue to do so after corona is gone and long forgotten. I love the convenience and how affordable it is to have somebody else do the shopping for me!

Meat Marinade

I always buy ribeye steaks because they have just enough fat and lean meat for all four of us to be satisfied.

Prepare the Meat

My husband does the grilling, but I prepare the meat and there is little hope that it’s about to change.

Cut the Squash

Spaghetti squash bakes in the oven for close to an hour, so I started with it first.

Season Squash with Salt and Pepper

Wash the squash and cut the top and bottom parts off.

Squash Seasoning

The squash is very tough, so use sharp knife and be very careful not to cut yourself.

Place Squash Cut Side Down

Slice the vegetable from top to bottom, scoop all the seeds out, season with salt and pepper, and place it cut side down on a baking sheet.  

Squash Baking

Bake both halves in the oven for 40 minutes on 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Golden Brown Squash

Check the squash after 40 minutes and if not golden brown, add another 20.
